M.2 SSD NVME, oh so many acronyms..
480GB..? never heard of such..
512gig, 1TB, 256gb yes..
maybe you answered your question yourself..
i did some research on these when i started to get X1 carbons and X1 extremes..
different and different sockets on the system boards..
i know this is not an answer but it might be a direction to look..
when i need an SSD i go to amazon and look around, i suspect there is amazon in india..

i think/hope this post should answer your question (since I wondered the same thing about this device):krsamy2022 wrote: ↑Fri Mar 04, 2022 10:38 amRecently I bought a used T480. It got a 250MB M.2 SATA SSD. When I tried to install a Intel 1TB M.2 NVME SSD, it is not getting recognised in the adaptor board. But a 480 GB M.2 WD green sata SSD, is recognised. SO are there 2 different versions of these adaptor boards one for sata and another for NVME? Thanks for any help

The adapter that goes in the 2.5" bay may be specific to one or the other but I don't think so. I've seen these on eBay cheap and if you want to run NVMe that is the way to go as that adapter supports 4 lanes rather than the two the WWAN slot supports. Mine has NVMe cards in both places with no issues.

I had this same problem with a Lenovo Yoga 6 (the blue jeans one) and even went as far as returning the NVMe drive that I'd bought. That one change was all it took for the system to see the drive.
